Maintain Your Gorgeous Grin With Dental Cleanings And Exams
If you do not have any apparent dental issues, you may be wondering why you need to visit the dentist for a dental cleaning and exam. But if that’s how you think about dental care, we recommend you shift your perspective some. Dental cleanings and exams are not about fixing dental problems as much as they are about preventing them.
Just because you are not experiencing any pain currently does not mean that your smile is free of decay or other dental concerns.
For example, you may have the beginnings of a cavity without even knowing it. But by visiting us for a dental exam, we’ll catch signs of potential problems early while the problem is still small and easily treated. Instead of a cavity growing to the point that you need a root canal to address the problem, we’ll provide a quick and easy tooth-colored filling that will blend in with your pearly whites.
If you maintain great oral hygiene habits, you may also wonder why a dental cleaning every six months is necessary. The fact is a dentist can clean your teeth more thoroughly than you ever could on your own.
Here’s one thing to put your oral health into perspective – there are grooves in the surface of your teeth that are so thin that your toothbrush cannot clean them! Not even a single bristle from your toothbrush can fit inside! But at North Bay Dental, we use special instruments to deep clean your teeth.
When you visit us for a dental cleaning and exam, we will use state-of-the-art dental tools to evaluate your current situation. For example, we will take digital X-rays of your mouth that produce highly-detailed images in moments. This will allow us to examine potential issues that might otherwise go overlooked!
Along with checking for cavities and other tooth decay issues, we will also check for other afflictions, like gum disease. Keeping a watchful eye for these sorts of things will help keep your smile healthy.
And, of course, we will thoroughly clean your teeth when you visit us for your routine check-ups. We can even provide tips to improve your oral hygiene habits at home. Just as a reminder, you should brush your teeth at least twice a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush and floss at least once daily.
To help you relax when you visit our Racine, WI dentist office, we provide an assortment of comfort options, including:
- Cozy blankets
- Soft pillows
- Water or juice to refresh you
- Vibrating chairs for a gentle massage during your cleanings
We even have a treasure chest full of toys for your kids to play with in our reception area! We love helping your little ones develop great oral health habits and a positive association with the dentist.
If you are nervous about your dental cleaning and exam, we may be able to help relieve your dental anxiety with dental sedation. We can typically provide a same-day appointment too if you’re worried you’ll back out of a visit if you have to wait.
